-- bring these extremists to justice and press on with the democracy and freedom that the people of libya deserve and have earned at great loss of blood and treasure. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i couldn't agree more with my friend from arizona. it would -- it would really dishonor the service of chris stevens and the three other americans who served us in libya if their murders by these extremists led us to retrench and pull out of libya and stop supporting the new libyan government, democratically elecd, pull out of other parts of the arab world. that would be exactly the opposite of what ambassador stevens devoted his life to. as i mentioned, inspired by his experience as a peace corps volunteer in morocco, devoted the rest of his life to service on america's behalf in the -- in the middle east. the last thing he would want this murder to do is to lead us to pull out, leave the area. and it would also be the fondest hope of the attackers, the extremists. why do that he tack? they attack to kill individual people but they really attk to, as i said before, push america out and create a
programs. i don't think a solution would involve the u.s. going libya and training people on the ground. that would be too politically sensitive. jordan was an option. there were plenty of different countries that could offer this in that regard. sorry. yes, one more point. ironically given everything we have discuss there had is a sensitivity within the international community of making the army too strong. i know, that sounds weird given everything we've been talking about. we're talking about a country where there has been no military or defense or no civilian oversight. and the chief of staff is doing an excellent job at the moment in terms of asserting authority given the limitation of the army. but at the same time there's no effective civilian way for that the. very quickly the issue of military. that's the biggest problem. we have people who have no experience. and the affairs they are assigned to. with the min stir of defense it has beened because he is [inaudible] he became a defense minister. you have the military itself. is the middle of the bureaucrats who don

libya. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this horrible story of the courageous american ambassador killed in libya. chris stevens sounds like a great guy. peace corps volunteer who in his more recent career acted heroically in the overthrow of gadhafi. has been overshadowed by the desperate reach by mitt romney to secure political advantage. hours before the killing romney issued a statement accusing president obama of having sympathized with those making the attacks on the u.s. consulate. he called it disgraceful. went further, obama sympathizes with attackers in egypt, the rnc chair tweeted, referring to a similar assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo. the accusation that the president sympathized with muslim militants echoes past attacks from the right. what's new in romney's statement in libya is its wildness. the president never said he sympathized with the crowds in libya and egypt protesting an anti-muslim film, apparently made in los angeles. "time" magazine's mark hallperin and howard fineman. take a look at the
to those who laid down their lives for their country at the libya embassy where they didn't have adequate security and where this administration enabled al qaeda and others to take over the government. it was nice of him to take a minute and a half to pay tribute to them giving their lives in the middle of this campaign event before he went on with the celebration. i recall president george w. bush, people here know we certainly had our differences and i certainly disagreed with him on a number of things, but i had great respect for the man. he said, how can i go play golf when i am commander in chief and i have sent soldiers or military into harm's way? it just doesn't feel right for me to be out on a golf course having a good time when our men and women are in harm's way. but it did look like a fun celebration there that president obama was having in las vegas. another article, libyan official said u.s. at fault in attacks. written by r. hawkins 12, september, 2012, he points out that although the head of libya's national assembly has formally apologized for the killing of u.s. ambassad
, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time that came out the united states couldn't really support any of these movements in the arab spring because quote unquote, we don't know who these people are, which is to say that the united states, and including the state department, just was not that engaged with these countries at that time. now, when you think of how, to what extent egypt or libya since these transitions have been in the news, it's been basically not at all on their own, and still a piece with the obama administration's policy on foreign policy, to lower america's direct engagement rather than let international ins
to carry out acts of terror. i believe that was done in libya. there are groups in egypt and elsewhere, pakistan, that want to achieve the same thing. we have to depend upon the other governments. if they want a relationship, they have to protect our embassy and our people. if they don't do that, we have to think very seriously about recalling our people and conduct off any assistance because we can't tolerate a situation where the government of any country is promoting anti-americanism. >>shepard: egypt has been one of the staunchest allies that kept the violence down that this treaty of sorts with israel could not be more important. that is a delicate line, very delicate. we are looking at a country in transition. they have a new president. we had institutions we hope are being built, democrat institutions. there is a real fine line they have to walk by, shoring up their own support of their muslim population as such in egypt. at the same time, they have to make sure they don't allow the provocation or an exercise of their free speech to jeopardize lives in egypt. we have to take car

after protests in libya. joining me, david kirkpatrick of the "new york times" from cairo and david ignatius of the "washington post" from washington. >> i think one of the things that may have played a rolein his vulnerability is that ambassador stevens was something of a hero to the people of benghazi. he was stationed there throughout the conflict. he really provided eager and important support to the rebels who were trying to oust colonel moammar qaddafi when that fight was going on. he's somebody who's seen around town not necessarily with a heavy guard eating local food at local places, hanging out with local people. he's friends with a number of sheikhs, with many of the prominent local iellectuals. i think he had reason to believ the city of benghazi really had his back, that he was very welcome there. >> rose: continuing on the subject of libya, i talked earlier today by telephone from geneva with former secretary general of the united nations kofi annan. what should we worry about when you see the kinds of demonstrations we have seen in cairo and the more lethal consequenc
